CHILDREN from Downham Feoffees Primary School have been sharing their thoughts about the school's recent healthy eating initiative.
Feoffees' healthy eating campaign, which began in October last year, allows each child to have a piece of fruit each day, and teaches children about the benefits of eating fruit and vegetables.
